This week's Bachelor in Paradise was basically chaos. From Matt completely walking out on the Jasmine-Christen love triangle to Dean betraying Christina for D-Lo after the rose ceremony, the second part of week three ended on a pretty rocky note and left almost every other contestant looking pretty miserable.
But thankfully, Derek Peth and Taylor Nolan defied the odds and proved that you really can find love in Paradise—the two lovebirds are reportedly engaged! (Oh yeah, spoiler alert.)
According to Us Weekly, Derek popped the question during the taping of Bachelor in Paradise’s after-show on Wednesday, August 30.
Derek, a commercial banker and Taylor, a mental health counselor, coupled up during the first few days of filming season four and have since been the most promising couple and a fan favorite. Despite the tumultuous relationships and drama around them, Derek and Taylor have persevered—even after an argument on this week's episode that almost tore them apart. Almost.
The big BiP news comes shortly after the couple's first big fight that aired on Monday's episode. During a one-on-one conversation about their relationship, Derek (jokingly?) said “F--k you" to Taylor, who later revealed that she’s been in emotionally abusive relationships in the past and found his words triggering. Everyone was on the edge of their seats to see what would happen to Paradise's favorite couple until Derek finally apologized and confirmed his feelings for her by giving her his rose. Whew.
Are these two the next Carly Bass and Evan Waddell? Only time (and Chris Harrison) will tell.
